Seven Rhinos in GB Squad
Posted by southstander on May 03 2006 - 12:07:46

In the 36

Seven Rhinos have been named in the initial train-on squad for the XXXX Test agains New Zealand at Knowsley Road on the 27th June. The squad of thirty six is made up of representatives from nine clubs (including two in Australia), and will be whittled down closer to the date.

Most of the Leeds stars who have been selected at this early stage stand a good chance of getting into the squad to take on the winners of last years Tri-Nations championship.

The Leeds players named are; Burrow, Ellis, McGuire, Peacock (as vice-captain to Paul Sculthorpe), Senior, Sinfield and Walker. They join representatives from St. Helens (10), Bradford (7), Hull FC (4), Wigan (3), Warrington (2) and Huddersfield, Newcastle Knights and Sydney Roosters (1 each).

Notable for their absence are Rhinos full-back Richie Mathers, and prop Ryan Bailey. It is also strange that there are no representatives from high-flying Salford, including star hooker Malcolm Alker.

Nobles selection for this test gives an indication of the direction of his thinking for the trip down under in the autumn for the TriNations 2006, a month away that will be the target of all British born players in Superleague XI. The trip to the southern hemisphere is also likely to be Nobles last outing in charge of the GB side as he has strongly hinted that he will then quit to concentrate on re-establishing Wigan Warriors as a force in British rugby league.
